Product works as advertised and the price is right. I'm a property inspector and this product can tell me if a finished basement wall is dry, damp or there is moisture behind the wall (very useful for home inspections). But I believe there is a design flaw that's a little annoying. To turn the unit on or off, you push the left button. Once packed in a tool bag to take for an inspection, this product (rubbing against other tools) will nearly always turn itself on during transport. I've packed it different ways and it seems to always happen. This will run out the battery quickly. So the product works, the price is good but if you pack it in a tool box or bag, believe me, any tool rubbing against this thing at the on/off button will turn it on.
This tool is very sensitive and is great at what it does. The LED readout that accompanies the LCD screen is really nice and there are pre-calibrated settings for different types of materials (drywall, wood, etc).

The only downside I found with this particular "pinless" type unit is that the sensing portion is limited to a square pad on the back side of the unit. Unlike the "pin" type meters, this makes getting into tighter places very difficult.

For instance, I wanted to check baseboards and grout seams for signs of moisture after a custom shower installation and it was virtually impossible to use this unit in the corners and at the base of the tile where I needed to measure. For applications that involve tighter areas as this or areas with inside corners, a classic "pin" type unit is much more convenient.

All in all, this is a very nice unit for the price with a decent overall range and great sensitivity. Recommended!
We were getting hardwood floors installed - or so we thought - when the installers notified us that they could not do the installation because the wood in our house had acclimated to 6.4% moisture and our subfloors were at 12.8% moisture. The installer found a leak in our water softener line which we got fixed the next day. Unfortunately, we had no way of knowing (ourselves) when to call the installer back. Hence, we purchased this meter.

As far as we know, it works great. We aren't too concerned with the overall accuracy of the instrument, +/- 3% is just fine for us as we're looking to compare the difference between two materials in our home (assuming the error is consistent between those readings). The resolution of the meter is 0.1%.

Other things you might want to know:
- It comes with it's own 9v battery.
- It measures wood between 5 - 50% and 1.5 - 33% for other building materials.
- It has a hold feature which allows you to save the... Read more
